  • Asphalt pavement is essential to the economy. Everything in your home or apartment traveled over an asphalt road at some point.
  • Most of our roads were built before 1980, are nearing the end (or are past) their expected life, and will need to rebuilt in the very near future.
  • Asphalt pavement is the mosin the United States by weight. All existing asphalt pavement can be recycled by grinding it up and using it in new asphalt pavement.
  • Smooth asphalt roads significantly reduce vehicle fuel use and wear-and-tear, and provide a surface that is quieter to drivers and surrounding communities.
  • Asphalt pavement is made of natural materials. The stone, sand, and gravel come from quarries, and the binder (the glue that holds everything together) comes from naturally occurring deposits that are produced as part of the oil refining process.

Lunch and Learn program
UAPA-Lunch-and-Learn

The UAPA Lunch & Learn Program helps members stay current about specification changes. Members get information about new products and innovations. Our events, including the lunch & learns, are also an opportunity for industry networking.

We look for presenters who are industry experts or who are well-educated about their specific subject. They are expected to be able to deal with whatever the topic is. Lunch & Learn sessions often generate a lot of follow-up conversations and meetings. Those who hear the presentations often take the information back to their colleagues, and that prompts additional conversations.

These sessions will give you the right tools to be able to make good decisions, and help you to find the right path for the particular problem you are trying to solve. The fact that they are free does not hurt either. They are also a great first exposure to UAPA. Please check our Events page for upcoming Lunch & Learn events, as well as other events held throughout the year.
